How do I startup Wordpress?

I’ve downloaded the zipped package to my pc, is there anyway, that I can just start it up, without setting up stuff on the server please?

At its most simple, no you can’t. Wordpress is a PHP based CMS, and so needs a web server running both PHP and MySQL to function. If you wish to run it locally, I’d suggest some sort of WAMP (Windows, Apache, MySQL, PHP) package and work from there.

Thanks Chris, that has answered it completely. I must admit, it’s a little confusing at first! ;-(

Try XAMPP (if using Windows) -
